Social Activities

We usually hold a small number of social events during the year such as meals at local pubs, and a summer barbecue.  We also have club membership of the Yattendon & Frilsham Social Club, which is conveniently located next to the tennis courts, so members can have a drink and chat after matches, at a very reasonable price.

We have also held other special events which have included a barn dance, quiz nights and Christmas parties.

The 2016 summer season kicked off with a working party to keep the maintenance up to date and get everything clean and tidy for the summer and a friendly American Tournament.  Both events were well attended and the tournament was a big success, closing with a barbecue – big thanks to Laura for organising.

The 2015 club tournament finals day took place on Sunday 6th September and was very well attended by players and supporters, and all the matches were really close battles.  It was great to see new members taking part as well as long serving regulars.  Here is the motley crew of finalists:

We started the 2015 summer season with a working party!  On Sunday 26th April a large group of club members assembled at the club house armed with assorted tools and cleaning equipment.  Hedges were trimmed, weeds killed, fences mended, the toilet cleaned, courts brushed and blown, windows cleaned, cupboards spring cleaned, a light fitted, the lock re-greased and so much more!  We also carried out the Wimbledon draw and did the routine safety inspection.  It was a very busy morning and the club now looks really clean and tidy.  

Club members hard at work preparing the courts and club house for the coming season.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped.  Here are a few familiar faces hard at work - there were others but they escaped the camera.
